Standing, not Fallen Flags

Standard

Many men and women have sacrificed their lives and loves for the love of their Country, to ensure the safety of their people, lands and borders. Sometimes, we celebrate them, other times we immortalize them. Ronovan’s challenge for today to me is a call to celebrate them https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2016/05/30/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-99-flagfallen/

Heroes Past

Half-mast flags mean sad

Lives cut in prime and duty

…Decorated dead

Not Forgotten

We celebrate you

Though gone, your good deeds we praise

As our flags we raise
